how do i fertilize the garden????
how do i?? water the garden????
Not me be stuck on how to deal with a scarecrow what do I DO oh well just gota be cunfused
k so stabby stab
dude tf were those artificial babies or some shit???!!
tbh i'm stuned i didn't get stuck, i just kept pressing things and it worked lol
How do I start over
Very cool, I wish it was longer lol.
hmm, i have a theory!
perhaps day 1 was actually day 1, and the mc recovered from the tragic incident. the game was just using the countdown format to show us what happened in the past.
That's a good theory.
i don't think so, what about the scarecrow them? it was made in the days after but still existed in day 1 and 2
please help. i cant figure out how to turn the radio off ;-;
well i can say this i wasn't expecting it to get so dark. a bit existential maybe towards the begging, but it took an abrupt turn, heh.
i really liked it though! it wasn't too on the nose with the horror elements, the first thing i noticed was the concerning looking sprites, and part of me just wondered if that was what they always had looked like.
i liked the countdown too, as things got weirder and weirder i was eagerly watiing for day 1
also, i wonder if one of the days was a dream. i think it was the first one the blue thing shows up? your roof is no longer painted, no scarecrow, etc. and its when things start really being weird. and the the next day you kill the alien and it looks like how you found it. i found that interesting
this game surprised me in a good way, and it was short and sweet. a few of the puzzles took a while, i got stuck on the fertilizer one. i finally gave in and looked it up, and apparently i was clicking the trashcan wrong.
my only real critism is the controls were a bit confusing, there kept being areas i felt like i should be able to walk in, but i couldnt.
all in all, fun game!
Yeah I thought it was good too. My interpretation on the blue thing wasn't that it was a dream, but that the main character was going insane from the isolation and kept forgetting what he did the day before and then remembering again, so he killed the creature and then forgot he killed it the next day so we're seeing it in reverse. I really like it it surprised me
I made a walkthrough for anyone that is stuck:
Pretty sure my brain melted a little bit with my week on this island. Nothing some meat won't fix 😀. . .
This game was truly amazing! The sense of unease only built as the days went by. Puzzles were interesting to figure out and the ending left me with the feeling of "what the heck happened!?" Awesome job dev!
I also included a written walkthrough incase anybody is stuck on how to beat the game. Check the pinned comment!
I'd love to finish play the game but I can't understand how to make dinner.
I can only pick one carrot from the farm. I have the bowl and the knife. I've managed to cut the carrot by spamming their numbers in the bar but what now. Can't figure how to put the carrots in the bowl and the bowl doesn't seem to interact with the water pond and also I have no idea where I'll cook the carrot soup. In the fireplace??
Basically I'm stuck before any of the creepyness happens. :(
how do I play guitar
Grab guitar, grab fishing rod, grab knife, use knife on fishing rod to get string, combine string and guitar, sit on outside stool with guitar.
how do I practice painting
I played it multiple times before but I still am not bored 🙂
Dang, MC really went off to the deep end. I mean, years of isolation as well as an unchanging routine is a one way ticket to insanity, especially whne you're literally in the middle of nowhere. I'm curious what happened to MC, what made him stranded in that place and started to live a life all while driving himself to the brink of insanity, well at this point he was fully into it but still. So curious.
Idk, he seems to have memories of normal life, with the houses and people, I think the radio is interesting how it spoke to him about weird things that seemed to have a story behind them.
Is MC actually a human or is he an alien mimicking a human pattern behavior through the bits and pieces he found?? Honestly I can remember a few parts about the game but I always did have the nagging thought that maybe MC isn't completely human and that's why he's like this. Food for thought!
does the game have differint ending？
If there were two guys on the moon & one of them killed the other with a rock would that be fucked up or what?
This game is one of those rare short games that prove that cute art styles and amazing 8-bit tracks can indeed lead to some thought provoking, dark situations.
To Do List is a game where you wake up each day and, well, do your to do list. It's premise is really simple: go around your tiny island and just do simple tasks from chores to entertaining yourself to making food. The game starts taking a turn near the halfway point as you start hearing things from your radio and giant worms start to appear all over your lawn (not to mention you dig up your friend to have a nice, cozy chat with them). In terms of music, the game has a really awesome soundtrack that goes well with its old flash style artwork and just the overall tone as the days progress. The ending is left pretty open as you end up harvesting your crops, masses of flesh that (with a little speculation) were what grew from the corpses you created along the way.
Gameplay-wise, there weren't any sections that had bugs or any glitches (that I could find). The only sore spot that I would be able to see people talk about is that, while the game gives you objectives, some objectives have multiple steps that the player must figure out on their own; with this being said, the game is so short and straightforward that it's very simple to find what's required to do next.
All in all, this game will draw you in with it's visuals and killer music, only to leave you questioning what you've been actually doing in your to do list
